[movies]Science Nation: Hurricane Sleuth
Getting the dirt on hurricanes of the future When a hurricane comes around, it's best to get out of the way--unless you have a thing for risky behavior! Or, perhaps, you're in the business of studying them. If that's the case, a good way to get data out of a hurricane is to head straight into one. That could involve a white-knuckled flight into the eye of a storm in a specially designed aircraft called a "Hurricane Hunter."
